Whether you’ve experience pregnancy loss as a result of a natural miscarriage or abortion, your grief and pain is real. Our staff can help you navigate this difficult season in a way that’s healing and hopeful.
Nearly 20% of all pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage according to the Mayo Clinic, some before women even know they are pregnant. But no matter when you lose the wanted pregnancy, the experience can be painful physically and emotionally.
If you’ve experience miscarriage and haven’t processed the pain and emotions you felt afterwards, we’d love to come alongside and help.
Cornerstone Women’s Resource Centers recognize that many women and men experience unresolved feelings after an abortion. Whether it’s your own or a loved one’s abortion experience you are processing, it is normal to experience a variety of feelings like the following:
- Guilt or shame
- Depression or hopelessness
- Avoidance of friends
- Uncontrollable crying
- Denial or numbed emotions
- Alcohol or substance abuse
- Eating disorders
- Suicidal feelings and thoughts
- Changes in relationships
- Flashbacks of abortion
- Sleep disturbances or insomnia
- Sexual problems
Regardless of your experience with these or other emotions, you are not alone. Many women, men, grandparents, siblings, other family members, and friends feel the residual effects of abortion. If you have personally experienced abortion or someone close to you has, we can help.
